Super creamy hemp pasta

Super creamy hemp pasta is such a delish weeknight meal, filled with so many nutritional goodies and vegan protein. I rarely eat pasta, but when I do I makes sure that I fill up on lots of vegetables and nutrition. This dish is the perfect balance between spoil, nutrition and just all around good flavors.
